Galletta's Karting Club - Free Go-Kart Racing in Oswego, NY
As you may have noticed, in back of our greenhouses, there is a rather large, dirt backyard karting speedway ever since the early 1990s. Since then, we have held a FREE go-kart racing club. Yes, it is 100% free to watch, join and race in, and it is undisputedly the largest and longest-running weekly dirt kart racing class in Oswego County. The club runs off nominal donations and the time and passion of our club drivers. We have points races every Sunday afternoon/evening all Summer long from June to September, and switch the racing to Saturdays during the Fall as well. Our average races are between 55 and 60 laps per week, climaxing with our annual points finale every late-September/Early October - our 200-Lap Galletta's Karting Klassic race! Here is a sampling of some of our race videos on YouTube:
We have one class of karts which are a bit of a hybrid half-racing kart/half yard kart. They are powered by Gas Briggs and Stratton Flatheads with stock Fun Power Carbs and Dyno Racing Cams that go a max speed of around 50MPH and can go over 200 laps on one small tank of pump gasoline. Instead of splitting into many classes, we handicap the races by weight (heavier drivers are allowed more horsepower, lighter drivers have weights added), have points/wins handicaps for every regular-season race, and have drivers ranging between 16 to 56 years old. We allow your own kart (as long as the motor meets our specs and rules), and have several of our own "arrive-and-drive" karts on site, available for a gas-and-parts money donation. Our winner's circle is large and the most varied of all local kart racing classes. Why spend an arm and a leg to race on a small track for a few minutes every week when you can spend less money and race for a few of hours on a large track every week for gas money? Or, if you are as good of a driver as you believe you are, do both! We have many people who have and still do. We don't operate the track for profit - we operate it for pure racing fun!
